There are three main types of fertilizers: organic, water-soluble and synthetic. Organic fertilizers are made from natural ingredients and have a slow release, meaning that the materials in these fertilizers must be broken down by soil microorganisms for the gradual release of nitrogen and other elements.
Magnesium plays an important role in activating enzymes involved in respiration, photosynthesis and nucleic acid synthesis. It aids in phosphate metabolism, serving as a carrier of phosphate compounds through the plant. Magnesium facilitates translocation of carbohydrates (sugars and starches) and enhances the production of oils and fats.Magnesium used for:regulating absorption of plant foods and helping seed formation.Magnesium helps distribute phosphorus throughout the plant for stronger roots and increased productivity.
Sulfur is an essential element in forming proteins, enzymes, vitamins, and chlorophyll in plants, and in nodule development in legumes. Protein synthesis requires large amounts of sulfur, which plays an important role in the formation of oils within the seed, and is a constituent of several amino acids and vitamins found in both plants and animals. Thus, sulfur is an important factor in determining the nutritional quality of foods.
In plants, zinc is a key constituent of many enzymes and proteins. It plays an important role in a wide range of processes, such as growth hormone production and internode elongation.
Copper is an important component of proteins found in the enzymes that regulate the rate of many biochemical reactions in plants. Plants would not grow without the presence of these specific enzymes.
Iron (Fe) is involved in many important compounds and physiological processes in plants. Iron is involved in the manufacturing process of chlorophyll, and it is required for certain enzyme functions.
Manganese (Mn) is an important plant micronutrient and is required by plants in the second greatest quantity compared to iron. Like any other element, it can have a limiting factor on plant growth if it is deficient or toxic in plant tissue. It is similar to iron in many ways, and manganese deficiency or toxicity is often mistaken for iron deficiency or toxicity.
